Try 8-6-74 Playin > Scarlet > Playin has some driving moments

Try 2-15-73 Dark Star > Eyes > China Doll The Phil/Jerry transition from DS to Eyes is interesting to say the least.

There are a lot of late 73 missing from the archive now - 12/6/73 - even 12/12/73 all have powerful jams, and it is no coincidence that Phil is always full force on these nights. 9/11/73 Dark Star > Dew it just goes on....

6/28/74 - is a DP and has what many consider "The" best 30+ minutes of improv the boys ever played

Dick said 73 was in his opinion the best and most interesting year the band ever had, I just happen to agree.
74 and late 72 are right there.

I concur -- I really enjoy '73/'74. I really enjoyed the side track into 11/14/73, what a beauty.

Regarding the piano v. organ, when Bruce hit the scene, I found the grand piano to be such a compliment to the band's sound, one that was missing during the eighties, and the synth'd piano just doesn't cut it for me, nothing like hammers banging those big, long strings.

That being said, I love what Brent brought to the band, and I really enjoy his vocals. Just more of a traditionalist I guess.

I'm on a real 73 kick right now. Getting as much as I can.
